* A meeting between the two rival leaders of Sri Lanka opposition party in the cards
Sun, Jun 8, 2014, 11:21 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 08, Colombo: Sources close to Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) say that a formal meeting between the UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe and his rival UNP MP, Hambantota district parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa may be held shortly.

The two leaders of the UNP are in strained terms since 2010 after an abortive attempt by Premadasa to oust the incumbent leader Ranil Wickremasinghe from the leadership.

Sources say that the mediators are seeking a settlement between the two leaders and the meeting is likely to take place in two weeks' time.

Close associates of both Wickremasinghe and Premadasa are the mediators of this peace attempt and they have already come to certain understandings following several rounds of discussions.
